I MADE IT! It’s been one week since I found myself face to face with labor and delivery! I was admitted on a Tuesday night to start one process and by Wednesday morning I hadn’t dilated so they had to break my water and my contractions started on my own. By 9pm I was ready to go, I pushed for 15 minutes and little man was welcomed into this world at 9:58pm. Like any mother I was overwhelmed by the emotions I felt for my little Roman. However I was so nauseous afterwards I really was kind of out of it. I didn’t want to hold him a lot because I felt so sick. They ushered him off to the nursery and had us relocated into a recovery room and we were off to bed by 1:30am.
The next day is when it really set in for me. I just couldn’t wrap my head around the fact that my husband and I had created this beautiful little boy! HOW did I get so lucky to have two great looking guys in my life? When I look at the pictures a friend of mine took the day after he was born I just couldn’t help but cry because of the happiness you can see all over our faces.
The healing process had started, all the fun excretions from my body, the soreness, the strange look of your stomach after you no longer have someone living in there, and well constipation. LET’S just say I went a full 24 hrs in the most excruciating pain I’ve been in. Breaking my water…eh, this was SO MUCH worse lol!! I don’t know if any other ladies out there experienced the hell that is constipation after pregnancy but lets just say this was not a minor case, this was like debilitating. I know you all wanted to know this. But hey it was part of my experience. The middle of the night blood pressure and temp checks were always fun to, I mean it was hardly a bother to be awoken from such a wonderful slumber in a luxurious pillow top hospital bed 😐
